The Daily Photoist: How to babyproof a concrete loft

Each weekday morning, we pick a recent image from the Torontoist Flickr Pool and feature it here on the site. It’s our way to give the many excellent photographers in our pool the attention they deserve!
There’s a moment in your life when all of a sudden everyone you know is having a baby, or talking about babies, or feeling parental pressure to procreate. It seemed to be an conversation topic that fills the void left post-Christmas.
This image by Toronto photographer viaveg (Nancy) had us laughing and laughing. The incredibly cute child, the photo taken from his vantage point and the off-kilter angle shows off a perfect combination of parental wariness and baby curiosity. It also points to the challenges of being young and urban AND a parent. Baby-proofing a loft is not an easy thing when there are no doors, no carpets, and plenty of places to cause mischief.
And who doesn’t want to impress a healthy love of bubble wrap in young children? As you get older, popping those bubbles is one of the few great joys that last a lifetime.
